Economist Christopher Waller has been confirmed as a Federal Reserve governor, following a near party-line vote Thursday in the Senate. At the same time, the previous controversial nomination of Judy Shelton for a similar position is likely over now that she has lost key Republican support and the Democrats have officially gained another seat. At the same time, the seating of Arizona Democrat Mark Kelly, who unseated Republican Sen. Martha McSally, likely sealed Shelton's fate. Republican senators Mitt Romney of Utah and Susan Collins of Maine opposed the Shelton nomination. Shelton is the latest Fed nominee from President Donald Trump to fall flat, despite Republican Senate control.

Extended unemployment insurance Both proposals include extensions for unemployment insurance as millions of Americans are still without jobs due to the pandemic. "Extensions of unemployment insurance and paid leave are the most important support Congress can give to families, so that they can make it through the winter while we wait for a vaccine." McConnell's proposal would also extend unemployment insurance, but for a shorter time. PPP, initially established by the CARES Act, gave small businesses loans that were forgivable if used mostly for payroll costs. In the first round, PPP approved more than 5 million loans, which amounted to more than $525 billion in funding.

Four in 10 small business owners (41%) support an extension or expansion of the PPP, making this proposal the only one that receives more support among small business owners than among the general public. Hiring and retaining workers is always a challenge for small business owners, but it has been especially so in the pandemic. Among the general public, support for a new stimulus package is similarly high: 89% of non-small business owners nationwide support a new economic stimulus.

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of lawmakers outlined a temporary $908 billion coronavirus relief proposal on Tuesday, far less than Democrats had hoped for, aimed at breaking a stalemate that has persisted for months. Republican leadership is pushing for a $500 billion package that has faltered in the Senate amid a lack of bipartisan support. The proposal includes $160 billion in aid to state and local governments, a priority for Democrats that Republicans have resisted. The framework provides $288 billion in support for small businesses like restaurants, and $180 billion to renew unemployment insurance, according to a summary obtained by NBC News. The working group pushing the new deal also includes four Republicans: Rep. Tom Reed of New York and Sens.

Mr. Powell, who told lawmakers that the Fed would have preferred to keep those lending programs going while acknowledging that it was Mr. Mnuchin’s place to decide, painted a more dire picture of the economic outlook. He pointed to continued uncertainty around the speed of a vaccine rollout, the reality that millions remain out of work and the fact that small businesses could fail in the winter months. “We do have a long way to go,” Mr. Powell said. The measure would provide $160 billion to help state, local and tribal governments facing fiscal ruin — a fraction of what Democrats had sought. Also included was $288 billion to help small businesses, restaurants and theaters, and a short-term federal liability shield from coronavirus-related lawsuits.
